An awesome new tweak for iOS 8 has been released that allows us to use the iOS 8 quick reply feature for third part apps which haven’t integrated it yet. This awesome tweak is called IMN for iOS 8. For now the tweak is compatible with Kik, LINE and Facebook Messenger. Whatsapp is also compatible, but needs a seperate extension to be installed which is free. Viber has now integrated quick reply to their own app.
Quick reply isn’t the only perk this tweak provides. It also facilitates quick compose! This means that messages can be composed to our contacts without even entering the app. Similarly, incoming messages can be replied to without entering the app as well by swiping down the notification bar and pressing the reply button. To enable the quick compose option, just enter the messenger app you use, and a pop-up will appear asking you to respring. After respringing, head over to the notification center> Today> Edit> and add the messenger you want to use quick compose for. This the sme method used for adding widgets on iOS 8.
Another secret we discovered while trying the tweak on Whatsapp is the ability to stay hidden! This means that by using the quick reply and quick compose option, we can reply and post new messages without appearing online or changing the last seen timestamp. This is because we aren’t entering the Whatsapp app at all. Also, no blue ticks for the read receipts! Now this definitely is a big bonus, something that makes this app more of an need.
